And the Winner Is...

You silly!  I mean how couldn't you be with this RAD Trophy...that's also a Vase.

Yellow Owl Workshop Trophy Vase

Though I haven't used mine as an actual vase just yet...this trophy makes for saw-weet room decor.  It's also a super cool gift for someone that just did something a new job, just get the gist.

I ordered mine from Velocity Art And Design in Seattle but for the locals (SF) head to Park Life in the Inner Richmond on Clement St. between 3rd & 4th.

Moody Blues

Leave it to Juicy Couture to class up the statement piece of our past!  Can we say My Girl?

I can totally picture this simple statement piece on my right index finger with a shabby chic beach-esque outfit or casual yet intriguing weekend outfit.  If only I could let people in my head.  Not sure if I'll add this to my collection yet or's hoping for an amazing sale!

I don't care if it's lame...or if it makes me 12...I can't help but like Juicy Couture.  I'm not sporting anything that spells out JUICY across my rear...or anywhere for that matter...but from time to time I see a ring, bracelet, necklace, hat, scarf or what have you and it has to be mine!
War of Love Linear Earrings
This is one of those times...but I'll need to hold off as long as I can since the shopping has been out of control and we're only 24 days into the New Year.

Spend Money to Save Money?

OK, if you have to spend a little money to make a little money then I propose my theory of spending money to save never hear anyone say you? 

At any rate we all know that I have a shopping problem...I do my best to save money on the things I buy…but I'm shopping so I'm not saving money!  All my life I've hustled to get what I want...nothing has changed...and the older I get...well let’s just say I do it with more style these days!   

If you’re anything like me you don’t care for certain things so you “make them fun”…like the gym…I find that if I have sweet gym clothes I’m more pumped to work out…you know look better feel better.  Which brings me to packing lunch...something I thought I'd said goodbye to after High School…and something I thought I wouldn’t have to do until I had kids of my own…but like it or not is saves you cash money…and…added bonus…it can help you to eat healthy…if done right.  To get to my long winded point…I got OOTS! 

made by OOTS!
about $34.99

 I recommend Google shopping “OOTS lunchbox” to find the best deal…I got mine at The Container Store by using Google to find an online coupon…I then ordered online, entered my promo code and opted for the in store pickup so I wouldn’t have to pay for shipping.  BIG NOTE…make sure you read all of the product info…this lunchbox comes in two sizes...the water bottle is not also comes in more colors (I have the orange/yellow color combo) and not all retailers sell them with the individual containers, instead they’ll sell you the lunchbox with the containers as add-on’s.  Bring your lunch to work in style…you’ll have everyone talking!

I Heart JC

Jeffrey Campbell!  For some time now I've been in LOVE with many great shoes...a few not so great...but mostly amazing!  There's no need for you to wonder about the shoes on the left because the Jeffrey Campbell shoes on the right are saw-weet! 
So Crazy
by Jeffrey Campbell
Again from (loving them) (no I was not paid).  I usually get my JC's from Nordstrom or a local boutique but time after time I find the best selection at  Why do I heart JC?  They're comfortable, on trend, reasonably priced and seem to really last.

***Shoes on the left are not yet available on but they're called ULRICA by Friis.***

OK, new rule...every Holiday I must take a full look at what Kate Spade has available since this is the second year in a row I've missed out!  

First it was this adorable ring...I'm sure I would have found any excuse to wear.

'bourgeois bow' ring 2009

And now it's this hat I don't need...and I'm sure I'd wear next to never...BUT I WANT IT!
2010 Collection
Perhaps it's time I add myself to the email list at

Why so glum?

OK, so this bag was totally necessary and unnecessary all at see she's me.  I can totally blame the hubby for this purchase as he said the graphic looks like me when I'm sad...and I found that to be totally well as an invitation for a purchase!
Sketchy Miss Marc Shopper
Now don't freak just yet...I did wait for this to go on cute and funny as it is I couldn't bring myself to drop that amount of cash on a denim bag with screen print and a baby sized leather strip that reads Marc by Marc Jacobs.  There are a few bags left out, and if you want to be my bag will run you about $ shop for the best deal!

Caged Bird

Right now I feel like a bird...caged without a key....
by Messeca
How kick ass are these?  Rhetorical people...anyone with decent vision can see that these shoes ROCK!  Yet another amazing find on  Sole Struck not only has amazing shoes but it's like they're taking their copy from my brain...copy is the description made to inform and romance the product for the consumer (you)!  It seems they've also taken a personal stand on providing their customers with the best fit information possible in hopes of getting you your right size the first time.  Rad shoes...rad website!  Happy Shopping!

Lift Kits...It's not what you think!

Lift Kits are the shoes you wear when you want to be taller...taller than the every day heel.  These shoes make you fear for your life...keep you on the lookout for even the smallest pebble or crack in the side walk...all the while making you feel all powerful.

by Senso
For some that's anything more that 4.5 inches and for the pros it's 6 inches and up.  At any rate I'd like to add these to my Lift Kit collection.  I'm not sure how much they are yet as they're still not available online...but I'll be stalking the site like it's my part time job to find out!  Holla!

Neon Love Affair

When you wait...some times you miss out.  That would be the case with me and these lovely Dolce Vida Wedges...

Dolce Vita Pela Wedge
I first saw them at Bloomingdale's over the summer...they called to me from across the sales most neon or sequin items do.  I had every intention of coming back to try them on and give into my obsession by walking out of Bloomingdale's with them in a medium brown bag...but time got away from me and though they never left my mind they'll never meet my feet.  Tear.  If you're a 7.5 and you love these as much as I do...snag them on or'll be forever jealous of you!

Boots, no fur!

Lord...I'm in trouble.  Spring and Summer EVERYTHING coming out and I want it all...seriously.  I need another job just to afford my obsessions!  Could you say no to these?  I don't want to hear your answer if it's a NO.

Check out for some flippin sweet shoes you won't find anywhere else.  For inspiration check out this link the weekender lookbook's going to land me in the poor house for sure!

Morning After Bag

Ignorance is not knowing Rebecca Minkoff ever existed...well those were better times.  You see now that I know how fabulous her bags soft the leather she just seems to design bags and wallets that she knew I'd like...well it's just plain shitty.  And by shitty I mean dangerous!
She had to have had me in mind when she designed this MAB Mini (Morning After Bag) in Electric Blue...I mean come's SO ME!  But I'll have to behave and be all adult n' what not and resist and maybe just maybe this will be mine...but thre's would have to be on sale on sale! 

*Sad entry containing FABULOUS BAG!

Surf's Up

I don't surf...used to...but if the chance ever comes and I need to know about the tide or know the time while lying await for some sweet waves I'll know...and I'll do it in style.  
Nixon 51-30 PU
I'm not sure how...but some how I found this available on for a measly $172.00 + shipping and needless to say I pounced.  Now days it's a hard color combo to find as I've google shopped it and found it to be sold out on almost every website.  The watch features a polyurethane band with patented locking looper, Stainless Steel, Swiss Movement, Tide Subdial and more.  I'm obsessed with all Nixon watches with this face now...trouble.

New Year new leave your excuses at the door and come prepared with these smart, fun, cute and funny products from Urban Aid. 

Make a "clean getaway", have a "naughty nite" or simply be ready for "one too many"!

80's Lady

Something about these boots whisper 80's to me...they don't scream it but I hear it none the less.  At any rate they're soft, comfortable and just what I was looking for...and so far everyone loves them!

Missy Short Cuff
Found them on when I was on the hunt for a quality, dressy/casual black boot.  Before buying I signed up for their email and received a confirmation with a 10% discount on my first purchase...yay!  A score at $144.72 + free shipping!  You can also google coupon and check out the search results for savings options.  Happy shopping!
